Villarreal Athletic Club betting prediction


Betting suggestion:

This game places on the pitch two teams that play offensive football, however, and looking at the moments it is possible to notice that Unai Emery's players have an advantage. In addition, the home club occupy a more favorable position in the table, apart from the fact of presenting a more qualified squad. On the other hand, we hope that the visitors will take the opportunity to put into practice their strong counterattacks. Taking into account these factors, risking in favor of the "Over 2 Goals" market is a good option.
